The Demopolis City School Board of Education is distributing bonus checks to support personnel just in time for the holidays. According to Superintendent Kyle Kallhoff, “the bonus checks are a way of showing appreciation for some of our hardest working employees, who in most cases are not our highest paid workers”. Checks range from $125 to $525 depending on the number of years of service the employees have with the system. The Board of Education is hopeful to continue and expand this expression of appreciation, which will be contingent upon healthy fiscal years. Support personnel positions include cafeteria workers, paraprofessionals, aides, custodians, maintenance workers, secretaries, bookkeepers, nurses, and clerks.
